Jackie O

On this lovely President's Day, I couldn't help but acknowledge the reigning first lady of style: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.  It's been half a century since her time in the White House and almost two decades since her passing, yet she remains the epitome of timelessness and class.  If ever there was a woman who understood the power of looking fantastic, it was Jackie O.  Not only did her wardrobe make history, but her determination to restore the interior of the White House left a legacy, impacted legislature and even helped her husband's administration gain international support during the Cold War (taking the importance of re-decorating to a whole new level).  Here's a snippet of dear Jackie in a 1962 White House tour that was distributed to 106 countries and even won an Emmy award!

We could all stand to learn a thing or two from Jackie O's simple yet impossibly chic sense of style.  Just look at her- she's spectacular!

Follow Jackie O's fabulous lead by incorporating some of her signature accessories into your look.  Here are a few of my faves:

1. Triple Strand Faux Pearl Necklace, $99 Smithsonian Museum Store  2. Jackie Ohh II Sunglasses, Ray-Ban $139  3. Silk Twill Scarf, Hermes $385  4. Pill Box Hat, Dorfman Pacific $30  5. Cotton Trench Coat, Burberry $895
